The number of new HIV/AIDS cases diagnosed in China in the
first six months of 2007, 18,543, nearly equals the total
recorded during all of 2006, according to the state-run Xinhua
News Agency. Most of the infections were attributed to drug
use, said Han Mengjie of the State Council's AIDS Control Work
Committee. Han warned as well of the risk of HIV's spread
through unsafe sex and population migration.
